Introducing Gneiss Wines
Published on March 11, 2021
As we progress closer to opening day, we are excited to announce a new winery partner to the District Wine Village, Gneiss Wines. Here is what they have to say about their new venture:
Being raised in the Okanagan and being involved in the South Okanagan Wine industry we have all participated in different capacities in the journey from early days, across 3 generations of families to build out this incredible valley with our wine friends.
What made you choose District Wine Village?
As Matt started talking about the village, we were on board with the concept out of the gate and eager to help bring it to fruition. We believe this is a great fit for the South Okanagan where immersive wine country really comes to life. Our partners all share a passion for wine in many different capacities, but most of all sharing a great local wine with good friends and family!
What is it about the Village concept that you were most excited about?
Being able to work hand in hand with many small artisan producers to create unique and innovative small lot wines in a South Okanagan destination while providing experiences for wine consumers in an integrated local wine, beer and spirits destination as we continue to build on the evolution of our agricultural region.
What are the first products set to be released this summer?
Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Rose and our New world style Bordeaux blend, Pendulum.
What are your favourite pairings for your wines?
‘Our favourite pairings for our wines – Good Friends, and Sunshine! Or a warm cozy fireplace for two. It’s all about matching the occasion – and in our backyard paradise there are lots of pairing opportunities!
